Chulis spent time in Major League Soccer (MLS) playing for the Columbus Crew (1999-00) and the Chicago Fire (2001). Off the field, he served as the Super Y League Director for the Rough Riders. Chulis was a student assistant coach at Virginia while finishing up his bachelor's degree in sociology during the 2004-05 academic year. He holds his USSF "A" coaching license and USSF national youth license.
One of the most decorated Cavalier defenders in school history, Chulis played four seasons for Virginia (1995-98). He was a three-time NSCAA All-American and three-time All-ACC first-team selection. Chulis was named NSCAA National Defender of the Year and was a finalist for the Hermann Trophy in 1998. He led the Cavaliers to 32 shutouts in four seasons.
